In mid-June, I started a job.

At the end of September, they let me go.

Le sigh.

Today I had a phone interview with a company out in California. They like what they heard on the phone, they like my resume, and they said HR would be calling with an offer by the beginning of next week. I have a face-to-face interview on Friday in Kentucky; I'm still going to cover all my bases, but I prefer the California job because it pays more.

So after years of pissing and moaning about wanting to move, and recently deciding I was happy to stay, here I am. Forced to relocate. I guess...I guess I'm okay with it. At the age of 18, places like Texas, Mississippi, my current state in the Midwest, they all seemed so far away. Since then I've been to the Middle East and Asia. So the west coast is no biggie...right?

The worst part is leaving Fjord. He's deploying soon, so for six months it won't even matter where I live. But not being able to see him when he gets back is going to hurt. We'll make this work, but it's going to be hard.
